|[Eg0_119] Mescalibur : Larmes de feu - Mescalibur|
In his new album Larmes de feu (could be translated as Fire Tears), Mescalibur continues to explore the possibilities of his analogic synthesizer. This time the mood is rather dark and heavy. These 3 improvised tracks were indeed directly inspired by an intense state of pain caused by a long-term illness. Philippe of Mescalibur wrote more about this in text below (in french only, sorry) so we won't add more on this subject...

|[Eg0_118] I.Z. aka IDZeroNo : Waving (EP) - I.Z. aka IDZeroNo|
I.Z. aka IDZeroNo is just back on eg0cide, waving. Don't be afraid, the experiment will be short. Just a stretched glitch in time and the decollated beat will reset your clock.

|[Eg0_117] Spleen : Detest - Spleen|
Spleen is an one-man project from Serbia which mixes dark ambient and atmospheric rock. Detest is an epic concept album dealing with the theme of misanthropy. It starts with an hypnotic ritual sequence, but later tracks also contains lots of industrial rock elements. All along the album, bleak drones, crushing guitar riffs, pounding rythms and haranguing voices join their forces to take the listener into a world of morbid fixations and reclusive anger ...

|[Eg0_116] Icoste : Dysthymia - Icoste|
Icoste is a solo project of electronic musician Stéphane Jeanin from Belmont, USA. Dysthymia is one of his most experimental works to date. This amazing album has an overall opressive and dark tone expressed through various means : eerie floating voices, mysterious drones, swirling alien pads that sometimes turn into noisy electronic storms. The whole forms a deep sonic experience that becomes more and more powerful track after track, culminating with the complex and crushing rythmical sequence...

|[Eg0_115] The Inner Shore : Extracts From Of An Unknow Science - The Inner Shore|
The Inner Shore continues his exploration of abstract droning soundscapes with a well-titled new album Extracts From Of An Unknow Science. A very personal blend of minimalist electronic atmospheres and disorienting microtonal shifts.

|[Eg0_114] Luciftias : Chronic Pentatonic - Luciftias|
After several collaborations with eg0cide's team, Luciftias finally brings a first solo album on the label. Chronic Pentatonic is one of his most subtle and ambitious works to our ears. This guitar-based piece was inspired by Steve Reich's composition methods, using loops of various lengths, here with an ambient approach. The result is a very organic, slowly evolving drone that deserves an active listening although it can also be enjoyed as background music.
Keywords: ambient; drone; Luciftias; eg0cide
|[Eg0_113] Emerge : Quantum - Emerge|
Emerge is the solo project of Sascha Stadlmeier, who also curates the Attenuation Circuit label . Today he offers us a deep and subtle piece of droney music. Quantum's several layers swirl, rise, and cross each others without repeating themselves, creating a strong, almost mystical atmosphere.

|[Eg0_112] Nowa Ziemia : Trajektorie - Nowa Ziemia|
We discovered Nowa Ziemia with these 2 tracks that he firstly self-released separately . "Bez światła" (without light) is rather abstract and noisy, "Wzorcec" (patterns) is quieter and more melodic. Both show a great sense of atmosphere building, somewhere between minimalist post-rock and raw guitar drone. They now form Trajektorie, the first web album of this very promising artist

|[Eg0_111] Half Evidence : Rain Spirits - Half Evidence|
Rain Spirits, Half Evidence's new album has been recorded (mostly) during the rainy month of april 2013 in Champagnac-la-Prune. Totally improvised as usual, these tracks show the most melodic side of the band, including some almost bluesy/jazzy atmospheres - but still within the band's personal blend of peaceful drifts and grittier percussive/scrapping sounds.

In term of releases, PhiMinD is a newcomer (?) in the field of dark ambient / ritual music, but he amazed us by the quality and depth of his works.Ascisco was self-released in december 2013 and we thought it deserves more exposure - because this album is simply one of the best in its league that we heard in 2013. All tracks sound very focused and cohesive despite of their improvised nature. It also seems that no looping was used in these recordings - and this is something we find quite refreshin...

L'anorkhestra is a free improvisation band with variable members. The 2 tracks of Smashed Bulbs Enlightment were recorded summer 2012. They mix abstract landscapes and raw free rock blasts, in a way that sometimes reminds me the spirit of the most radical "kraut rock" recordings in the early 70s.

Anonymous polish droners Digital Mass are back on eg0cide with a new mysterious offering.
